The Assessor is the official who estimates the value of real property, which is converted into an assessment (one component in the calculation of real property taxes).  

It is the responsibility of the Assessor to maintain a fair and equitable assessment roll, the document which lists all properties and their assessments within an assessing district.  It also lists a property's exemption(s), if any. 

The assessment office processes all exemption applications, including basic STAR (School Tax Relief), Enhanced STAR, Senior Citizen, Veterans, Persons with Disabilities, Non-Profits, Clergy, etc.  See the exemption links for more details.

For more information please visit the NY State Department of Taxation and Finance's website and their video entitled, "The Job of an Assessor."  Their video entitled, "About Property Taxes and Assessments," also provides a good overview of property taxes and assessments.  (links below)
